Tetracyclic antidepressants

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Tetracyclic antidepressants contain four cyclic rings as part of their structure. Tetracyclic antidepressants are similar to tricyclic antidepressants and act by inhibiting reuptake of neurotransmitters serotonin and/or noradrenaline in the brain, and elevate mood. They are effective antidepressants but are used less often now due to their side effect profile.
